"Now that I think about it, I have to agree that Serafin comments are suspect here as there were no monitors in use as a Wall of Sound show. Goes to cred, I suppose."

He does mention that "Phil really starts to get pissed off when the stage monitors and the overall venue aren't loud enough (track 5), and he let's the responsible person know this in no uncertain terms! Jerry even questions how the stage monitors are being utilized..."

In listening to Track 5 (Attics) of the sound check its seems Phil's main complaint at 1:03 is about amplifiers not being run-up enough - "run 'em up god dammit" is what Phil says. Weir says they need low end. At the very end of the track Jerry asks about limiters being put on the monitors.

He could have been more specific in his description, but it is on tape Jerry talking about monitors... so I'd have to believe there were monitors in some form or another.
